Assessment

Students may choose between two assessment methods, according to their individual learning needs:

  • Option 1. Continuous assessment + final test:
    1. The 60% of the final grade is awarded on the basis of continuous assessment of gradable activities throughout the course. An on-site final assessment for further checking on the activities will apply.
    2. The remaining 40% of the final grade will be based on end-of-term exams that will assess the acquired competences, as part of the on-site final assessment.
  • Option 2. Final test: the 100% of the grade will be based on the results obtained at end-of-term exams results.
